A perfect book if you want to travel and see the world without going out of your bedroom. I love how the author brings the readers to exotic and intriguing places and I love how various issues was being brought up in a subtle manner.
This book is more than a wonderful read, and if you know how appreciate a good book, this book should be on your reading list and a place in your permanent library.
Highly recommended to those who wants to travel but have no chance to do so, and also to those who are looking for a puprpose in their life. Great book to read if you’re feeling ‘lost’.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received an ARC of this book from Random House Children’s Books via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review for this book.
Are you a Global Vagabond?
No, but 18-year-old Bria wants to be. In a quest for independence, her neglected art, and no-strings-attached hookups, she signs up for a tour of Central America—the wrong one. Middle-aged tourists are hardly the key to self-rediscovery.
So when Bria meets Rowan, devoted backpacker and dive instructor, and his outspoken sister Starling, she seizes the chance to ditch her group and join them off the beaten path. Bria’s a good girl trying to go bad. Rowan’s a bad boy trying to stay good. As they travel through Mayan villages and remote Belizean islands, they discover they’re both seeking to leave behind the old versions of themselves. The secret to escaping the past, Rowan’s found, is to keep moving forward. But Bria realizes she can’t run forever. At some point, you have to look back.
